Gears of War 3 has been revealed by executive producer Rod Fergusson. The game is due out this September.
In an interview with “It’s mostly around weapon skins in terms of tying into historical stuff. Two of the weapon skins are based on historical weapon skins, so if you want the gold lancer and the gold hammerburst in Gears 3, you get them by owning the gold hammerburst and the gold lancer in Gears 2, so those skins transfer over.”, Fergusson anoounced,
The game will also reward gamers who owned the PC version of Gears of War and Gears of War 2: “If you did something in Gears PC you get a chrome skin, if you did something in Gears 2 you get a chrome skin. The chrome set is sort of our thank you to people who played our games in the past.”
All of the "historical" unlockables will be purely cosmetic, so gamers need not fear that they'll be at a disadvantage if they didn't own prior Gears games.
